Elaborate Classic Painting Gets Rendered Entirely In 3-D
Looks like a painting, right? Well it's not, it's a 3-D rendering of Benczúr Gyula's 1885 painting Budavár visszavétele created by 3-D artist Farkas Zsolt with over 8.5-million polygons. That is a lot of polygons. Polly want a cracker? Polly want a -- wait, where'd she go? "Polly gone." Zing! Come break my nose with your fist.
Keep going for shots of the progression from big ass polygons to finely detailed masterpiece, as well as a video showing the 3-Dness. More info about the entire process HERE.
Thanks to Claudin, who wants to live in a painting. Me too, just not this one. I was thinking more of a tasteful nude.
